Nob Hill Neighborhood Guide

Nob Hill is an upscale San Francisco neighborhood that is nestled atop a steep hill. From the top (and from its hilltop hotels), Nob Hill offers residents and visitors alike breathtaking views of the rest of the city. The neighborhood's prestigious reputation stems from the California Gold Rush and railroad boom, during which railroad barons constructed lavish mansions at the top of Nob Hill as a quiet getaway. Today, Nob Hill's history lives on in its most recognized landmarks, including the Grace Cathedral Episcopal Church and James C. Flood Mansion.

Nob Hill is roughly bounded by Polk Street to the west, Post Street to the south, Mason Street to the east, and Washington Street to the north. Notable neighborhoods like Russian Hill and Pacific Heights are immediately adjacent to Nob Hill.
